Colt defense preserves victory
Submitted By Mike Heightchew
James LoganÕs Colts put on the afterburners to edge the Moreau Catholic Mariners in a close contest on February 14th that ended with a slim 73-68 victory. In a game that quickly turned into a speed contest, both teams tried to take control early with fast breaks and successful transition basketball. The scoreboard was lit up as the Colts and Mariners traded points by making great plays.
Colt Chad Schaper showed great speed and moves in the paint area putting in 10 points on his own, forcing the MarinersÕ defense to concentrate on him, opening the outside shooting lanes for Colt Jesus Loza to fire at will. He finished with a great night, hitting the basket from everywhere, putting 17 points on the board.
Entering the third quarter, the game was still up for grabs as Mariners Oscar Frayer made impressive plays, both on offense and defense, leading the scoring with 20 points, followed by teammate Armond Simmons who added 19. The difference was key Colt defensive plays as they held on for a hard fought victory.
